Loma Linda University Fellowship in Global Emergency Medicine


The Global Emergency Medicine Fellowship at Loma Linda University provides training for physicians interested in serving the global community.  The fellowship offers a 1- or 2- year track (MPH available for the 2-year track through the University of London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine).

Our institution and department have a strong commitment to global health and we have several faculty trained in global health. Use the program link learn more about our department and our faculty.
